Lake Placid at Paris Mountain State Park

Lake Placid is a 13-acre lake located within Paris Mountain State Park offering swimming, fishing, and non-motorized boating. Lake Placid at Paris Mountain State Park can be used as a put in and take out.  The lake is flatwater.

Paris Mountain is located in the rapidly-developing city of Greenville, South Carolina, and although the park was once a rural retreat, bikers, hikers and those visiting Camp Buckhorn now keep the park bustling year round. When it comes to camping in state parks, the Paris Mountain State Park camping facilities are top-notch and include paved camping sites, 13 of which offer tent pads, and five trailside campsites around the North Lake Trail Loop. Admission to the park is $5 for adults; $3.25 for SC seniors (age 65 & older); $3/child age 6-15; Free for children 5 and younger. This admission includes access to our designated swimming area when it is open.
